Birdsall Town Court

Birdsall Town Court is located on County Road 15b in the town of Canaseraga, New York. The town of Birdsall is located in Allegany County, New York.

The Town of Birdsall is part of the Allegany County in New York, United States. It was around 1816 when the area that is now known as Birdsall was first settled. It was named after the Eight Judicial District Judge, John Birdsall (1823 – 1829). The town is located in the northeast part of Allegany County. It was formed in May 4, 1829 from several parts of the town of Almond & Allen.

Birdsal was first located back from 1882 to April 1st of 1947 on Pittburg, Shawmut & Northern Railroad’s main line as well as its predecessors. At a later date, it was uninhibited by the U.S. Interstate Commerce Commission promoting the usage of road truck transportation in that area. The first settler of Birdsall was Josiah Whitman and then not long after, William P. Schaack, a person named Vance as well as Jeremiah VanWormer came to settle in the land.

By 1830, the town’s population was 534 and reached to 573 in 1835 but it had fallen to 328 in 1840. In the next years there were subsequent increase in the population of the town but by 2010 census, the population in Birdsall was only 221. There were several communities and locations in the town that you can go to.

There is the Birdsall hamlet located on the County Road 16 or Dalton Road which is in the western half of the town.  Another hamlet of the town is the Grove, located at Birdsall’s eastern town line. There is also the Scholes, a location you can find on the County Road 16 by the south town line.

Advantages of Hiring A Local Attorney

The John C. Nelson law firm receives calls from attorneys across New York State asking me to ‘cover’ a traffic ticket for him or her. This is because not all traffic tickets can be handled by mail. Most of the time, I can appear on my client’s behalf or even handle the matter by mail, but sometimes courts require the attorney to be present in court. For example the courts of Limestone, Perry or the Village of Ellicottville can not be handled by mail, attorney must be present.

When you hire an attorney from New York City to appear on a traffic ticket that was issued hours away from the big city, they call a local attorney, such as the John C. Nelson law firm.

Sometimes the big city attorney calls the local prosecutor who offers a plea to a points violation instead of a parking ticket. The big city attorneys that advertise on the the TV, radio and internet are many hours away and have no interest in taking the case to trial and can’t argue motions.

It’s more advantages to hire a local attorney, who knows the law, the locale and can be present at the local court, when needed.

Did you receive a ticket in Birdsall Town Court?

In most instances in life, the more points you get, the better it is. However, that’s not the case when it comes to the New York Department of Motor Vehicles issuing points on your license for certain types of traffic violation convictions. When it comes to a clean driving record, you don’t want any points or as few as possible. Having points on your license can increase your automobile insurance, it can prevent you from having certain jobs that requires you to drive and it could lead to license suspension or revocation.

The New York Vehicle and Traffic Law section 1180 deals with speed limits and lays out the consequences imposed by a court upon a conviction. The fine that a court may assess is based upon the specific traffic violation stated on the issued ticket, the speeding infraction, and the number of previous convictions.
